Frank Ntilikinas path to the NBA draft is unique, sort of like the 7-foot wingspan he possesses as a point guard.

While others are scrambling for interviews and workouts, Ntilikina is competing for a league championship in France. Its his version of the NCAA Final Four, played out at the same time as the next biggest moment of his career " the NBA draft at Barclays Center. Quite an eventful two weeks for an 18-year-old.

But his absence from the process hasnt sapped the enthusiasm from teams in the lottery, including the Knicks, whove been linked to the Frenchman with the No. 8 pick in next Thursdays draft.

Apparently the interest is mutual.

I watch a lot of their games and I know how they play with their triangle offense with Phil Jackson as the president, and I know the players, Ntilikina told the Daily News in a phone interview from overseas. I think it would be a good thing for me.

With his best-of-five series starting Tuesday, Ntilikina doesnt think hell have time to work out for any NBA teams ahead of the draft on June 22. The best-case scenario is a three-game sweep for Ntilikinas team, Strasbourg IG, meaning itd be over by Saturday with enough time to secure short interviews, he said.
